I would suggest you to create a custom editor that derives from ComboBoxEditor.  Your "CustomComboBoxEditor" will have to override the CreateItemsSource method and return a collection of items that will be used by the ComboBox.  Since your model has a dynamic collection of items, I recommend that you return a collection of type ObservableCollection<object>.  If you keep a reference on the ObservableCollection<object>, you'll be able to add or remove items from it anytime.  Since this type of collection implements INotifyCollectionChanged, the ComboBox will be able to update its list automatically.


I hope this will help you.
